The know-how, in my opinion, is, first of all, a savoir-être. I am a weaver. At 25, I weave the invisible threads of an intimate story that does not know how to say otherwise. Trained in textile handicraft training in London - Central Saint Martins - I acquired the weaving skills that taught me a job, safety in doing it, but also the daring of incorporate more contemporary elements from other arts: painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, and photography. I could add calligraphy, poetry, exploration is infinite.
On my old wooden loom, I weave miles of coiled threads that are released and mingle according to a well-established and thoughtful framework. Weaving is the art of miscegenation. I juxtapose photos, paintings on paper, materials, colors, folds, and folds. It is a dance with the craft, a ritual and slow dance with the arms and the whole body that repeats endlessly the ancestral gesture of the craftsman, which requires physical commitment and self-sacrifice. All this should not be interrupted, I would lose my own drawing as the thread of my story.
After a long preparatory work, I choose my natural paper and linen threads, dye them, put them on the job, collect my images from everyday life, my own photos or those cut from magazines, I assemble them, paint them again or redraw them, then I print them on weaving by the process of sublimation or digital printing. It is an adventure playground where living universes have created that move and question. The stakes are there: it's about capturing something of the energy of the world and using the threads like the spider that weaves its web, making a mechanical work a unique piece.
«Marie Hazard weaves. Weaving is by nature an act of civilization, an act repeated since the beginning of time. the woven fiber, the drawing, and the painting.
The woven works of Marie touch us deeply because anchored in our culture, they are truly civilization and thereby question the convulsions of our time. His end-of-study project (BA Central Saint Martins) questions the consumer society through the prism of the garment where the wearer is insensitive to the very history of the tissues with which he covers his body. The voids thus created in the nets of Marie are the witnesses of this collective amnesia. By adding pieces of tissue that she selects, symbols of fragments of memory, Marie tries to reinvent her own story, another story.»
